class aws_cdk.aws_certificatemanager.PrivateCertificate(scope, id, *, certificate_authority, domain_name, key_algorithm=None, subject_alternative_names=None)

Bases: Resource

A private certificate managed by AWS Certificate Manager.






import aws_cdk.aws_acmpca as acmpca

acm.PrivateCertificate(self, "PrivateCertificate",
    subject_alternative_names=["", ""],  # optional
    certificate_authority=acmpca.CertificateAuthority.from_certificate_authority_arn(self, "CA", "arn:aws:acm-pca:us-east-1:123456789012:certificate-authority/023077d8-2bfa-4eb0-8f22-05c96deade77"),
  • scope (Construct) –

  • id (str) –

  • certificate_authority (ICertificateAuthority) – Private certificate authority (CA) that will be used to issue the certificate.

  • domain_name (str) – Fully-qualified domain name to request a private certificate for. May contain wildcards, such as *

  • key_algorithm (Optional[KeyAlgorithm]) – Specifies the algorithm of the public and private key pair that your certificate uses to encrypt data. When you request a private PKI certificate signed by a CA from AWS Private CA, the specified signing algorithm family (RSA or ECDSA) must match the algorithm family of the CA’s secret key. Default: KeyAlgorithm.RSA_2048

  • subject_alternative_names (Optional[Sequence[str]]) – Alternative domain names on your private certificate. Use this to register alternative domain names that represent the same site. Default: - No additional FQDNs will be included as alternative domain names.



Apply the given removal policy to this resource.

The Removal Policy controls what happens to this resource when it stops being managed by CloudFormation, either because you’ve removed it from the CDK application or because you’ve made a change that requires the resource to be replaced.

The resource can be deleted (RemovalPolicy.DESTROY), or left in your AWS account for data recovery and cleanup later (RemovalPolicy.RETAIN).

Return type:


metric_days_to_expiry(*, account=None, color=None, dimensions_map=None, label=None, period=None, region=None, statistic=None, unit=None)

Return the DaysToExpiry metric for this AWS Certificate Manager Certificate. By default, this is the minimum value over 1 day.

This metric is no longer emitted once the certificate has effectively expired, so alarms configured on this metric should probably treat missing data as “breaching”.

  • account (Optional[str]) – Account which this metric comes from. Default: - Deployment account.

  • color (Optional[str]) – The hex color code, prefixed with ‘#’ (e.g. ‘#00ff00’), to use when this metric is rendered on a graph. The Color class has a set of standard colors that can be used here. Default: - Automatic color

  • dimensions_map (Optional[Mapping[str, str]]) – Dimensions of the metric. Default: - No dimensions.

  • label (Optional[str]) – Label for this metric when added to a Graph in a Dashboard. You can use dynamic labels to show summary information about the entire displayed time series in the legend. For example, if you use:: [max: ${MAX}] MyMetric As the metric label, the maximum value in the visible range will be shown next to the time series name in the graph’s legend. Default: - No label

  • period (Optional[Duration]) – The period over which the specified statistic is applied. Default: Duration.minutes(5)

  • region (Optional[str]) – Region which this metric comes from. Default: - Deployment region.

  • statistic (Optional[str]) – What function to use for aggregating. Use the aws_cloudwatch.Stats helper class to construct valid input strings. Can be one of the following: - “Minimum” | “min” - “Maximum” | “max” - “Average” | “avg” - “Sum” | “sum” - “SampleCount | “n” - “pNN.NN” - “tmNN.NN” | “tm(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” - “iqm” - “wmNN.NN” | “wm(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” - “tcNN.NN” | “tc(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” - “tsNN.NN” | “ts(NN.NN%:NN.NN%)” Default: Average

  • unit (Optional[Unit]) – Unit used to filter the metric stream. Only refer to datums emitted to the metric stream with the given unit and ignore all others. Only useful when datums are being emitted to the same metric stream under different units. The default is to use all matric datums in the stream, regardless of unit, which is recommended in nearly all cases. CloudWatch does not honor this property for graphs. Default: - All metric datums in the given metric stream

Return type:



Returns a string representation of this construct.

Return type:




The certificate’s ARN.


The environment this resource belongs to.

For resources that are created and managed by the CDK (generally, those created by creating new class instances like Role, Bucket, etc.), this is always the same as the environment of the stack they belong to; however, for imported resources (those obtained from static methods like fromRoleArn, fromBucketName, etc.), that might be different than the stack they were imported into.


The tree node.


The stack in which this resource is defined.

Static Methods

classmethod from_certificate_arn(scope, id, certificate_arn)

Import a certificate.

  • scope (Construct) –

  • id (str) –

  • certificate_arn (str) –

Return type:


classmethod is_construct(x)

Checks if x is a construct.

Use this method instead of instanceof to properly detect Construct instances, even when the construct library is symlinked.

Explanation: in JavaScript, multiple copies of the constructs library on disk are seen as independent, completely different libraries. As a consequence, the class Construct in each copy of the constructs library is seen as a different class, and an instance of one class will not test as instanceof the other class. npm install will not create installations like this, but users may manually symlink construct libraries together or use a monorepo tool: in those cases, multiple copies of the constructs library can be accidentally installed, and instanceof will behave unpredictably. It is safest to avoid using instanceof, and using this type-testing method instead.


x (Any) – Any object.

Return type:



true if x is an object created from a class which extends Construct.

classmethod is_owned_resource(construct)

Returns true if the construct was created by CDK, and false otherwise.


construct (IConstruct) –

Return type:


classmethod is_resource(construct)

Check whether the given construct is a Resource.
